Energy Healing For Grief: Support For The Bereaved
Energy work can play a valuable role in supporting us when we have lost a loved one.
Grief is a normal human process, something we all go through. So the goal of using energy healing for grief shouldn’t be to “heal” it, since it’s a normal process the focus of the work is to assist in moving the grief through us so not to keep it stuck in our energy field or physical body.
Provide Comfort And Keep The Energy Moving
Energy healing also provides valuable comfort and a bit of respite, and to and keep the already-wavelike energy of grief moving. Because like all emotions, grief is meant to move through us, not get stuck in our energy field or our physical body.
Energy Healing for Grief: Support Spiritual Growth
Grieving provides a powerful opportunity for spiritual growth. We shouldn’t seek it out for this reason—all of us will have enough opportunities for mourning, without seeking it. But supporting a grieving person’s spiritual growth is another valid goal of energy work for the bereaved. Personally, I believe that deep grief prepares us for greater service to others. Having experienced profound loss, we can be more compassionate to others. Our hearts are softened, opened. We feel our connection to the rest of humanity. We open to the non-material world. We shed our masks and reassess our lives and what is truly important to us. We are prepared for new growth. Since grieving is something none of us can avoid, it is good to know that there can be spiritual gifts in it.
Provide A Safe Space For Feelings
Another important aspect of energy work for grief is to help people understand that grieving has its own timetable. In Western culture, we tend to think people should be all fine and dandy in a month or two, or even less. People need to be supported in not feeling weird because they're not done mourning in a time frame that is convenient and comfortable for others. Part of your our journey will be to provide a safe space for your to acknowledge the reality of where they are emotionally.
